The Feast of the Visitation is a reminder that Our Lady is a woman of action. On hearing from the Angel Gabriel that her cousin Elizabeth was with child, Mary immediately set out and went as quickly as she could to a town in the hill country of Judah. The journey was some 80 miles which included travelling through Samaria. It must have taken her two or three days at least. But she wasted no time and stayed with Elizabeth for about three months.
Mary put the message of the angel into action. Likewise she asks us to do the same with her words given through the Medjugorje visionaries, to walk the talk, to live the messages.
Dear children! Today I invite you all so that your prayer be prayer with the heart. Let each of you find time for prayer so that in prayer you discover God. I do not desire you to talk about prayer, but to pray. Let your every day be filled with prayer of gratitude to God for life and for all that you have. I do not desire your life to pass by in words but that you glorify God with deeds. I am with you and I am grateful to God for every moment spent with you. Thank you for having responded to my call.
